It is no secret that I'm obsessed with Martha Stewart. Ever since childhood, I've been mesmerized by her ability to create magical confectionary kingdoms, transport you to faraway lands with her cooking adventures, and add warmth to the home with a myriad of craft projects.
As a child, I would spend hours watching and re-watching her Thanksgiving and Christmas specials; jotting down copious notes of tips and recipes, tenaciously trying to convince my less than enthusiastic mother to help me prepare them. Nowadays, I don't have time to devote to such lengthy followings. Instead, I religiously devour Martha’s monthly magazine, “Living,” seeking out whatever hidden treasures she plants.

As a nutritional counselor, I’ve been looking for ways to encourage clients to eat beats and appeal to non-believers such as myself. So having just received a bundle of beets from our winter CSA share, I declared – “If anyone is going to help me like beets, it would be Martha!”
Once again, Martha did not disappoint. Here is the recipe, which I’ve adapted below:
